Recently, on the gaming front an introductory game of SAGA: Crescent and the Cross was played.
First thoughts are the Moors won't stand up against the Crusaders and Military Orders heavy cavalry. Perhaps this is won't be the case, perhaps it will and as the figures are "generic" they may morph into other factions in time.
There was a few raised eyes when Impaling Spears and The Moors Gold were used. Impaling Spears certainly stalled the Knights charge and took a few of them down too. However, the Crusaders and Military Orders had the edge on the night and the game was a victory for the Crusaders. There was a comment that the rules are written to favour the Christian factions, hopefully further games will show that there is balance within them and this is not the case.
During a conversation with a friend the other day the expression "there are gamers who paint and painters who game" was used. This got the grey matter turning round and the question is which are you? Here it is a painter who games.
Cheers for now.
